    Default Lucky, Good, or a Combo of Both

    I saw an interesting stat today.

    Does that make us lucky, good, or a little bit of both?

    Great question: Its such a fine line, I have said 100 times at least, with the parity in the NFL, games are very often decided by a handful of plays.

    There were times last season, that there were drives at the 10ish mark of the fourth quarter, where a 3 and 2 here or there picked up would have resulted in the ability to run a few more minutes of clock and probably eliminate some of those losses. It was a combination of poor coaching, poor execution, and bad luck.

    Last year was just strange, as if all the positive karma of 2008 was paid back negatively in 2009.
